Deepak Chopra’s new book, The Future of God: A Practical Approach to Spirituality in Our Times, is a very poor book for a number of reasons. I want to enumerate those reasons, but first let me tell you about another book, a very fine one, Karen Armstrong’sThe Case for God. (Knopf, 2009, 406 pp.) A scholar of comparative religion, Armstrong writes that virtually all world religions have historically depended on a foundation of silence, or what she calls “unknowing.” This is the silence th [...]

QuoteThe chance that higher life forms might hve emerged in this way [i.e randomly] is comparable to the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junkyard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials within.-Physicist Sir Fred Hoylep.49QuoteThe analogy was brilliant because it can be easily understood, and believed, by anyone. A Boeing 74 has around six million parts, and it takes intelligence, design, and planning to fit them all together. Hoyle wasn't a creationist, and he didn't believe in [...]

I’m pretty sure when I say the name “Deepak Chopra,” Mr. Chopra needs no introduction. However, just in case you haven’t heard of Deepak Chopra…allow me to make the introduction.Deepak Chopra is one of the most famous global leaders…he has transformed the world with his medicine and teachings for wellness of the mind, body, and spirit. He is known as a prolific author of (80) eighty books, and (22) twenty-two of those books are New York Times best sellers in both fiction and non-fict [...]

As I've watched our next generation wander far from traditional religious views and practice, I've often thought about the future of God in our country and in the human family at large. As I've watched fundamentalism take root everywhere, I've often thought God could use a good interpreter down here, one who understands the universality of divine consciousness and its integral connection to our higher human nature. So much has been distorted in our religions, it's hard to know where to start. A [...]

Really liked the middle half of this book, so much that I'm rating it a 4. But had some problems with his critique of militant atheism, his seemingly intentional naivety, and his narrow view of God as non-personal. So taking the book as a whole, I rate it a 3, but for how much I liked the middle, a 4.Christians wd be better liked if they read books like this, and wd be no further from truth, only closer to God by being closer to themselves.Couple of passages I liked, and some discussion.1oks.goo [...]

In a word, The Future of God is a beautiful book. At the risk of offending those who subscribe to a traditional religion, this book is for the rest of us—the spiritual, the believers—who dismiss the God of children’s fables and the Bible. Who reject a white-bearded father-in-the-sky, and don’t necessarily equate God with Jesus Christ. Many such “heathens” believe unequivocally in God. We’re smart enough to know that to presume otherwise is wholly illogical and arrogant. As Deepak p [...]

No delusions, just an open mind.The main reason I like Deepak Chopra’s latest book, “The Future of God” is that it stands as a viable alternative to the “militant atheist’s” bible, “the God delusion.” Indeed, even though Deepak does not make the statement himself (at least I have not read specific words to that effect), it seems to me that “The Future of God” was written as a direct response to the “avowed enemies of faith.” As such, many references are made to the milita [...]

As a primer on the human wisdom that can be gained from Eastern religion and philosophy, this would be nearly a two star book.As a book on God, one star is far too generous.Here are a few of the book's problems (not even close to a comprehensive list):1. Utter pantheism.2. Denial of the reality of evil (and the claim that resisting evil is participation in evil).3. The claim that Christian faith, particularly in the resurrection, is blind.4. Making Christianity (particularly penal substitutionar [...]

Misplacing this book, I said to a person, do you know where 'The Future of God' is? She mistook this as a defensive take on one of life's big questions, explaining numbers of youth attending church are up. I guess she has her God as a witness to that one.But chances are if you're offended by Chopra for many reasons, his net-worth, his network *Oprah*, 12 people of big credibility supporting him at the beginning of this book. He's twinged skeptics' nerves, challenging Team Dawkins, Team Harris, T [...]

So this is sitting on the NEW FICTION table at the library and with it being Christmas and all I pick it up thinking it might get some spirit of the season going.Having returned my membership to the Pope many years ago it turns out Mr.Chopra doesn't go to church either,interesting.Read on.As it becomes clear early on,this is not so much about the future of God,as it is about the present of Richard Dawkins:Mr. Chopra does not like him(imagine a lightbulb here).So now I have to read The God Delusi [...]

A quote from the book, "You are finding your center whenever you. .Refuse to turn against others for ideological reason." yet, he spent a good amount of time in the book dissing a writer who disagrees with his ideas of God????? I thought this would be a good book, no stars, bad book.

I think this is a timely view of faith, belief, or whatever term you choose to give it. Traditional Christian religion continues to decline something else is surely needed.

This was my first Chopra read, and I liked it pretty well. His vehement rejection of and response to militant atheism was interesting. I appreciate his appreciation for the importance of spirituality in our time and rejections of the materialist stance that all can be known via rationalism. When dealing with alternatives to the prevailing materialist world view, he can, at times, be a bit opaque, but that seems hard to avoid when dealing with the ineffable. Overall, I found some good take-aways [...]

The Future of God by Deepak Chopra is the voice bridging the gap for all seekers who find themselves wandering in the wilderness between the camps of raging atheism on the one hand and empty religion on the other hand--both of which fail to address the nagging sense that something of significance is missing from life.Chopra spends ample time in the opening two-thirds of the book laying out the arguments made by modern day atheism and science regarding their belief that there can be no God. He al [...]

An academic book that teaches how to remove the veils of ignorance and makes you easily and logically drop all the old convictions baggage and beliefs of how God was known. And it shows you how to transcend into God’s real world through experiencing God not blindly believing in Him. Highly recommended.

Nederlandse titel: De toekomst van God - een pleidooi voor hoop, kracht & liefdeIk heb al veel boeken van Deepak Chopra gelezen, ook spirituele boeken. Ik was benieuwd of Deepak Chopra dezelfde mening is toegedaan als ik, nadat ik de boeken van Michael Newton gelezen had. Ik was dus zeer benieuwd naar dit boek.De kerken lopen al tijden leeg.

I have a suspicion that this book is better as a read. Meandering at times, it can be difficult to follow in the audio form.Basically, Chopra goes into great depth about the interest question of whether or not God exists and whether or not we should believe without proof. He also discusses how much we should trust in God for all things or whether we should believe, but rely on ourselves. He goes up against famous atheists like Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchins, all the while doing the del [...]

My Review of The Future of God by Deepak ChopraFirst I must admit that I was going through a sort of spiritual crisis when I came upon this bookOn blogging for books so I had hopes for this book. But at first this book started really slow for me.The author started out like he was in a fight with Richard Dawkins over God vs atheism. Once you get past the first part the author goes in to stage 2 Faith. This is where the book starts to get better for me. The author still talks about militant atheis [...]

I have to admire Dr. Chopra's ambition. He has written a book about a phenomenon which he describes as being indescribable in words. That doesn't stop him from trying. His defense of the spiritual world against the assaults of militant atheists, such as professors Dawkins and Dennett, will win him friends among the adherents of traditional religion, however Dr. Chopra is no admirer of organized religion either, dismissing the "Sunday school God" as a creation rather than Creator. Unlike the mili [...]

I read another review that called this somewhat scattered and probably dictated. I would agree with that. It did not seem very focused and didn't really do a good job of countering Dawkins, et al. But in a few places Deepak waxed philosophical and I generally like his philosophical/metaphysical bent so it was OK. I would have liked a more intellectual counter argument to Dawkins but I am still formulating my own. This did not give me any fodder really except for a couple of places where Deepak a [...]

We all create our own gods, whether you like to think that way or not. We all feel that the god that we serve, worship, respect, revere, is the correct god, but can you be sure? Is that really the bigger picture? Is god a being in the sky, or is his essence in all of us?This is a great book, and it describes several gods that we create in order to move forward in life. For example, a god who intervenes when we are good, or a god who damns people to hell for wrong doings or not believing the righ [...]

I don't think God particularly needs Deepak to go to bat for Him (or Her). All the same, even though his stuff is pretty relatively simply written for the masses, he does a pretty good job of putting up an argument against the scientific materialists. He also does a pretty good job of incorporating some Vedantic wisdom. People think of him as a charlatan, but I think he's pretty on the level. Like a lot of New Age lit, it's kind of simplified Blavatsky (who he fails to credit, by the way), but t [...]

I enjoyed this book and reinforced many of the lessons about being present that I am trying to internalize. Like many of the books I've read over the past two years or so, it was about 30% - 40% longer than it needed to be. I have immense respect for Deepak CHopra, however it felt as though he was using this book as part of a crusade against militant atheists. Most people who are going to read this book don't need that much convincing. Nevertheless, this was a good read.

This is a book to be read for sure by all religious and spiritually minded. He attempts to rip atheism to shreds (and very well) and brings forth the idea of God being in consciousness. He validates many of his points using various scriptures but does not practice any faith tradition. All somewhat confusing while being very inspirational.

Excellent overview of religion, spirituality and current environment of both and our society. Depak does not claim any particular religion so his overview is fairly impartial. I wrote down several quotes from this book because they quantify my take on my relationship with a power greater than myself.
